  Christmastime in the Marais
by jglsongs

Le Marais, which straddles the 3rd and 4th arrondissment, IS Paris in all its charm, beauty and glory. Narrow cobblestone streets, boutiques, restaurants, cafes, the center of Paris gay life (Rue Vieille du Temple/St-Croix de la Bretonnerie), Jewish life (Rue de Rosiers), museums (Beaubourg, Carnavalet), beautiful squares and parks (Place des Vosges, Marche Ste-Catherine) and a photo opportunity on every corner.

It's not only one of the oldest quarters of Paris, but also could be called the most romantic quarter of Paris.
